Poll - At which age do you become a "Senior Citizen?"

I ask because, provided I live that long, this year I turn 65, the age which I traditionally associated with "Senior Citizen." I never had grandparents to interact with, so I guess the default retirememnt age became my default geezer age.

I think AARP starts accepting members at age 50.

Over the past decade or so, I've become more and more comfortable about asking if there's a senior citizen discount. My mentor at the muffler and brake shop would be proud of me.

On my 50th birthday, I got a notice from AARP that it was time to start planning my funeral. It didn't go over well.
That being said, I have only used my discount once. I'm okay with that too.

AARP Uses 50, and I agree, and voted such, but really It should be more like 60. Denny's gives 15% off If you have an AARP card. I think that's a pretty good deal.

I have the AARP card and I used it to get the discount for the Consumer Cellular cell phone for Drew and I. It is a lot cheaper we only pay $70 a month for both phones. I have also used it for a hotel for us too.

When I told my mom and sisters about it my older sister made fun of me for having it. She said that just means you are getting really old if you have the card. I said no look how much we are saving on our phones and look how much more you are paying then we are. I would rather save money then pay more having the card.

I don't care what anyone says, I'm not there yet. Age is just a number. It's when the bones and body stops playing nice that counts.

I ordered my hubby's AARP card before he turned 50, it came with a complimentary spouse card, so yup, I have one too. Taco Bell considers 50 their 'senior' age. Seniors get free soda there. At work, senior age for coffee and soda for cheaper, is to be 62, but we don't card people. I'm not quite ready to claim being a senior, but some days, I sure feel like it!
